It would really help if I had access to all programs through that function.

Firstly, Windows 7 does not have, and never had an Add/Remove Programs entry in Control Panel. It's now called Programs and Features.

Secondly, not all programs add themselves to the "Uninstall a Program" list in Control Panel.
Some programs have no uninstaller because they don't need one. In these cases the program can be "uninstalled" simply by locating where the program is installed and deleting it.

Most programs install to "C:\Program Files" and do so by creating a folder therein named either either for the program, or perhaps for the company that made it.

You can probably just delete that folder and its contents to "uninstall" the program.
One safety note: if you're not sure, rename that folder, reboot, and use your machine for a while. If no errors pop up because the software or other components couldn't be found, then that's an additional indicator that deleting might be safe.

Some very simple (in terms of installation) programs just come as a single ".exe" file. All you need to do is locate and delete that file and you're done.

Hope this helps.
